How many superstars can they fit in one movie? In the upcoming movie, ‘Rock the Kasbah,’ that question may be answered. Bill Murray stars alongside Bruce Willis, Zooey Deschanel and a ton of others in this hilarious (and, dare we say rocking) new flick!
In Rock the Kasbah, which will hit theaters on Oct. 23, Bill Murray is Richie Lanz, a rock music manager, who recruits Zooey Deschanel for a USO tour. Well, as can happen, rockstar Zooey royally screws Bill over, leaving him broke and in the middle of Afghanistan– without a passport. However, as we see in this trailer, he may not be without hope! Check it out right now!
“Time for a crazy story,” Richie says, using what we imagine is a double entendre to kick off the trailer. “I was a rock tour manager, and this is what I’m supposed to do: I’m supposed to tour with my act.”
That act refers to one Ms. Zooey, who is not too thrilled about taking a trek to the Middle East. “You will play in front of 2,000 horny soldiers,” Richie tells her while they are in route via airplane. She’s so freaked she precedes to lose her proverbial cookies. “I’m sorry but I can’t tell you if you’re vomiting or laughing,” he says, as she audibly sobs with her head between her legs.
Well, it turns out Zooey really didn’t appreciative that snideness. In fact, Richie is shortly thereafter informed (by Bruce Willis!) that she has taken off– with everything. “She stole my wallet, my money, my passport,” he says. Uh, bummer.
In a stroke of faith, though, Richie’s luck turns around when he meets a young girl with a golden voice, who may also be his golden ticket! Oh and bonus points to the movie for that Kate Hudson appearance!
